Step inside some stunning examples of Spanish Colonial Revival and Mediterranean Revival architecture at the annual home tour sponsored by the Glendale Historical Society.
Spanish architecture has left an enduring impression in Los Angeles, and Glendale in particular, where Spanish Colonial Revival — and Mediterranean Revival — flourished during the late 1920s and early 1930s.

Despite its 1949 time stamp, Lloyd Wright's Dorland home features elements that are of the moment in terms of design -- concrete slab flooring, radiant heating and indoor-outdoor access via floor-to-ceiling sliders.
Miao Miao and Scott Franklin are the kind of couple who relish childlike beauty.

I need to do this ...
So, it’s late summer and your tomato plants are a bulky mass of tangled vines, taking lots of room but providing little — if any — fruit.

It's a precarious -- but worthwhile -- walk through Hot Cactus in Echo Park: http://lat.ms/2aEYYrZ

Landscaping and yard projects  - 
 
So much prettier than a lawn.
In our latest lawn-to-drought-garden makeover from readers, a South Pasadena lawn is removed and replaced with UC Verde buffalo grass ( Bouteloua gracilis ), natives and drought-tolerant plants. Layered plantings and giant pavers transform the front yard into a tranquil escape.

+Gideon Brontë You seem like a fickle client! :-) I got enough of those, lol..

I just like the idea of lower inputs (water, fertlilizers, gas, etc.) to maintain these types of gardens. They're also very well-designed as well, not simply a mini cow-pasture.

This kitchen trend — homey comfort — takes its cue from the living room.
The kitchen is the heart of the home. Every day, family members gravitate to this space, scrounging for a bite to eat while catching up on one other’s lives. At parties, friends inevitably congregate here as hosts fuss around the stove top. While food and drink flow, so does the conversation.

Amazing how much this Altadena home looks like Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian homes. This is actually by his son, Lloyd Wright.

After El Nino storms took out his trees, a Studio City homeowner re-landscapes his lush English yard to better handle the California drought.
Nearly 10 years ago, El Niño storms prompted Andrew Epstein to begin the process of converting his English garden in Studio City into a drought-tolerant landscape.

Very interesting article. Although I'm on the East Coast, many of us are starting to lean towards less lawn and more sustainable plantings. Thanks for sharing!

Love this sunny IKEA kitchen. Remodelista breaks down how to get the look: http://bit.ly/2aFwDzk
Stylist/blogger Lucille Gauthier-Braud lives in in the middle of Paris, but her newly overhauled kitchen looks straight out of the French countryside. We've sourced all of the design elements for you to create your own version.

Stunning and thoughtful remodel: http://lat.ms/2aovX1I
When Scott and Kendall Watson found a four-bedroom house for sale in the Hollywood Hills, it wasn’t exactly love at first sight.

Even beds are organic now.
Your bed is supposed to be the place where you can rest your weary head and let the day’s worries fade away.
